Zhuang Nai Nai jumps back to the bed and experimentally draws something using the notebook. Her posture looks very inelegant. It is then that her phone starts ringing.
It is a call from Lin Xi Er. She says that they can transfer the ownership of the home that very day and then asks her if she would like to see the house.
Zhuang Nai Nai really wants to see the house, but will Si Zheng Ting let her?
She hesitates for a while before she knocks on his door. She tells him about her plan.
Si Zheng Ting looks at her in surprise, “You want to stroll around the city?”
Zhuang Nai Nai lowers her head in disappointment, “En. It’s fine if you won’t let me.”
She will find the time time to look at the house some other day.
Just as she turns around to walk away, she hears him say, “Let Da Zhuang drive you.”
Zhuang Nai Nai: ……………..!
She is so excited! Why is this man so amiable today?
She looks like a dove that has just escaped it’s cage. She lets Da Zhuang sends her to the house, telling him that she is visiting a friend.
She and Lin Xi Er explore the house.
She picks a room for her mother. The room is not bad, facing north, it has a really good view. The natural lighting inside the room is not bad as well.
She does not dare to stay there for too long, in case if it makes Da Zhuang suspicious.
After they finish viewing the house, she drags Lin Xi Er shopping with her.
She buys some new gifts for Lin Xi Er and her mother as well as some new furnitures for her new house.
Just as they are leaving the mall, Zhuang Nai Nai’s eyes fall on a black shirt on display inside a store.
Since Si Zheng Ting bought her a notebook, should she buy something for him in return?
She has always been a decisive person, so she quickly buys the shirt for him.
Two hours later,
Zhuang Nai Nai stands in front of Si Zheng Ting’s study in hesitation. She outstretches her hand to knock on the door, before quickly retrieving it.
Will she lose face if she gives the shirt to him?
After all, their misunderstanding has not been resolved.
But still, she already bought the shirt…… She bites her lips before gathering her courage and knocks on the door.
His voice can be heard saying from inside, “Come in.”
She walks in with her head lowered, looking very uneasy. Under Si Zheng Ting’s forceful gaze, she holds out the shopping back and embarrassedly says, “I thought this shirt would look good on you, so I bought it.”
The room descends into silence.
She looks up and finds Si Zheng Ting staring fixedly on the shopping bag.
What kind of expression is that?
She bites her lips. Right…… All of his clothes are custom-made, why would he wear one that she randomly bought for him? She must have been muddle-headed when she bought this.
She retrieves her outstretched hand, “I’m sorry for bothering you……….”
Before she even finishes speaking, she hears the sound of his chair moving back. She looks at him and finds him imposingly making his way towards her.
He takes the bag from her and puts it on his desk, “Are you going to take back something that you have given to other people?”
Does that means that he wants the shirt……….?
Her eyes light up. She looks at the documents piling on his desk. Not wanting to bother him, she quickly says, “Then, I will leave first.”
When she reaches the doorway, she hears him says, “Nai Nai………..”
She turns around and looks at him. He looks conflicted. In the end, he simply forces himself to continue speaking, “I am sorry for that bank card.”
Her heart sinks and tears suddenly pools in her eyes. Her throat feels tight. That simple sentence from him is enough to bring out all the grievences that she felt.
He continues speaking, “Return the card to me, Nai Nai.”
